          Hodges played a Buescher Big B Aristocrat (late 1930's model), and I THINK he used a Brilhart mouthpiece. Most likely a Tonelin.

      For the 1969 Tivoli Gardens concert with Duke Ellington, Johnny played a Vito. The concert is now on DVD, so you can see for yourself; it's worth the purchase.
